A dinghy will take you from the beach of Grand Bay to the Catamaran anchored 150 metres from the beach. Take your desired seat and get ready for the wonderful experience. The trip to the island takes about 2 hours. Sail on the different colours of the Ocean and enjoy very beautiful sea views. Reach the ilot Gabriel, the natural reserve having nests of the Paille en Queue among others. Snorkel as you have a wonderful beach around the island and swimming is a marvel. spend good time and relax on the island until a dinghy comes to take you back to the Catamaran, meaning lunch is ready friends. bbq, salad, drinks etc all provided. Dessert as well. Then start your way back to your paradise island of Mauritius again. During the return trip, you will be sailing very close to Coin de Mire, which is like a big mountain in the ocean. If the weather allows it, we shall snorkel very near to that mountain or even dive at times. Making your way back you can see dolphin or sea turtles but that is quite rare. The sail on the high ocean is a matter of thrill but safe. An unforgettable experience. Our guides and staff on the catamaran are lovely.
